|Marsupial Pages to Color Online
Marsupials (Megatheria) are pouched mammals whose babies are born in a very undeveloped state; the young then attach themselves to their mother's nipple. Many marsupials have a pouch that encloses the young.
The biggest marsupial is the human-sized red kangaroo (Macropus rufus); the smallest marsupial, the pilbara (Ningaui timealeyi), would fit in a person's hand. Some commonly-known marsupials include the kangaroo, opossum, Tasmanian devil, and koala. The only marsupial in North America is the Virginia opossum.
Marsupials evolved during the late Cretaceous period, about 100 to 75 million years ago, during the time of the dinosaurs.
